On her album/mixtape, But You Caint Use My Phone, Erykah Badu ensconced herself in the textures of the time, aptly- dubbing it “trap&b.” But her tastes for trap go deeper than a record made in 10 day’s time. Badu’s a true champion of the ATLien arts and has consistently proved her strips in the years since. Ahead of the release of 2 Chainz‘s next mixtape, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, the fellow trap ambassador has been wrangling queens to hand-pick their favorite anthems, commencing with Karrueche‘s playlist and continuing on today with a new one from the mighty Miss E. Badu.
For her run as curator, Badu highlights the contributions of Gucci Mane, Divine Council, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Wintertime, Future, Mike WiLL Made-It and plenty more. You can stream the full playlist down below for a primer in trap’s deceptively-broad applications. Catch Erykah Badu on the road this winter, the dates for which are listed below.
